Lobster Landing continues to delight and surprise us - it is right on the water with picnic tables, umbrellas and the best lobster rolls ever - we had hot, buttery lobster in delicious rolls, in my case it was a gluten-free roll, and every bite was awesome. We have been eating lobster rolls, both hot and cold, up and down... More

This homey and seasonal eatery is rough around the edges but full oi life. The Landing closes by 6PM so get there early. It is BYOB and the menu is brief but all the preparations are excellent and plentiful. The Lobster Roll is the biggest on the CT shoreline and worth every penny. Have a frozen treat for desert as...

This is classic CT shoreline!!! The lobster rolls are great, and the location is always fun. I return whenever I am in the area.

This place has been so highly reviewed that when our daughter-in-law said she'd never had a lobster roll, we took her there immediately. The lobster was tough and chewy and had no taste. There was however lots of butter on the roll. And at $17.50 per roll, it was an expensive disappointment.

We have been here numerous times; happy to return. The establishment is by far the best lobster place in this part of the country in terms of quality, balancing against the cost of food and timeliness of service. MENU - Extremely limited, The best is their Lobster Roll, Connecticut-style. FOOD - Lobster meat was perfectly cooked, and fresh. Served in... More

We enjoyed lunch a lot! Lobster rolls have butter rather than mayo which was delicious (great rolls!). Gelato for desert was yummy! Almost perfect only because we wished for a couple of other kid friendly choices - chicken tenders or grilled cheese maybe? - but, that being said, our daughter really enjoyed her hot dog. No frills, but right on... More

Just had another great no-frills experience by the water. A hot buttered lobster roll that is second to none, eaten directly from the foil it was wrapped in. Seated at the patio table with plastic chairs, I absolutely love the friendly atmosphere. It was also "Senior Day" with discounted prices for citizens over 60. How can you beat that? If... More

It was really tasty, minus a bit of shell I found in mine. Was left wishing we got more food for the cost though
